In Detail

In 2002, he became the youngest ever free dive record holder, by diving to a depth of -87m using the force of his fins alone. That marked the beginning of a great adventure. Guillaume then beat the world record 3 times, became the world team champion in 2008 and the individual world champion in Greece in 2011, diving down to -117m. Nowadays, he dives until -125m of depth, the new France record. However, it was thanks to the film he produced in 2010 with his partner Julie Gautier, Free Fall, that the Frenchman's career truly took off. One scene shows Guillaume walking on a seabed, towards an underwater chasm: the Deans Blue Hole (Bahamas), the deepest blue hole in the world. In just a few days, these images had been seen all around the world, revealing a new, artistic and poetic approach to free diving.


Guillaume has been a free diver for over 15 years and is constantly pushing his human limits further and further. As a result of his many dives, competitions and broken records, Guillaume has gained incredible experience in high-level performance management. With a great deal of objectivity and maturity, Guillaume has been able to share his experience with companies.
